                   Protocol Independent Multicast MIB

Status of This Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing the
   Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) protocols: PIM-SM (Sparse Mode),
   BIDIR-PIM (Bidirectional), and PIM-DM (Dense Mode).  This document is
   part of work in progress to obsolete RFC 2934, and is to be preferred
   where the two documents overlap.  This document does not obsolete RFC
   2934.

1.  Introduction

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB)
   for use with network management protocols in the Internet community.
   In particular, it describes managed objects used for managing the
   Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) protocols (PIM-SM [RFC4601],
   BIDIR-PIM [RFC5015], and PIM-DM [RFC3973]).

   This document is part of work in progress to obsolete RFC 2934
   [RFC2934].  RFC 2934 defined an experimental MIB module for managing
   the PIM protocols.  The MIB module defined by this document is a re-
   working of the MIB module from RFC 2934, with major changes that
   include the following.

   o  This MIB module is independent of IP version, whereas RFC 2934
      only supported IPv4.

   o  This MIB module includes support for managing BIDIR-PIM.

   o  This MIB module retains limited support for managing PIM-DM
      [RFC3973], but that is no longer its primary purpose.

   o  This MIB module does not include support for managing PIM-SM v1.

   o  This MIB module does not depend on the IPv4 Multicast Routing MIB
      defined in RFC 2932 [RFC2932].

   o  This MIB module includes support for configuring static Rendezvous
      Points (RPs).

   o  This MIB module includes support for configuring anycast RPs
      [RFC4610].

2.  Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

3.  The Internet-Standard Management Framework

   For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
   Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
   RFC 3410 [RFC3410].

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  MIB objects are generally
   accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
